|The Deerslayer (1920)|
Early silent version of James Fenimore Cooper's classic story. It's not the best transfer in the world, and I couldn't find any info on this at IMDB, but according to the information I have, that's Bela Lugosi in the role of Chingachgook. If that's not Bela, it sure looks like him. Runs about 45 minutes.

|Dr. Mabuse, The Gambler (Dr. Mabuse der Spieler) 1922, Part 1|
A film about the dastardly doings of Norbert Jacques's title villian, directed by Fritz Lang. Rudolf Klein-Rogge stars in a role he later repeated in "The Testament of Dr. Mabuse" (aka "The Crimes of Dr. Mabuse) in 1933. This is actually the first part of a film that was released in two parts, something Lang has done a few times (The Indian Tomb, Siegfried). Unfortunately, I do not have part 2. I hope at some point someone who has a copy of Part 2 to be kind enough to upload it...

|Metropolis (1925 - shorter version)|
Fritz Lang's silent sci-fi classic. NOTE: this was transferred from a vhs copy. The print that this was taken from was well-worn and quite faded in many scenes. Shows the importance of film preservation.
